Hello all! I’ll share my WWDC’18 (dub-dub) experiences in that post! That post includes details about (travel, meeting with other scholars and attendees, food, popular travel apps in CA, sessions, labs, the bash and submission process)
When I got to the gate of the plane, the boarding process started and I was taken on plane by the last checks. I was really excited to see San Francisco and attend to WWDC!
When the journey ends
I left the airport by taking the general procedures and performing the checks.
I went from San Francisco to San Jose with Uber application and settled in San Jose State University’s dormitory.
First day: I took my stuffs by giving my ID to Apple’s check-in desk in San Jose McEnery Convention Center.
- Scholarship Badge
- WWDC 2018 Jacket
- Pins (turkey flag was the best!)
After that I spent time with completely networking and sessions.
The sessions I attended and gave importance during the conference are as follows:
- Using Collections Effectively
- What’s New in Swift
- Designing Fluid Interfaces
- Designing Notifications
- Intentional Design
- What’s New in Testing 1
- What’s New in Testing 2
- Advanced User Interfaces with Collection Views
- Swift Generics
- What’s New in Foundation
- Advanced Debugging with Xcode and LLDB

and other sessions > Click here
Summary: Technically, Apple has made a number of contributions to the Swift language, and these milestones are passed on to developers through these sessions.
Note: You should definitely follow the sessions associated with the design, many tricks and details are shared.
I met lots of incredible stories and tech guys! Apple Engineers was in everywhere and you feel as free as you can.
Recommendations for foods
As you know, There are lots of burger house around the California’s every part.
When I arrived to San Jose, we went to In-N-Out Burger with Omar Albeik
It was really affordable and very tasty!
It was tasty but a bit expensive. If I had a chance to select one, I would select to In-N-Out Burger. But give a try!
Pizza My Heart
These slices were really delicious!
I will not be able to comment much except for these options, but Apple’s donuts and juices were great! 🍩🥤
Popular travel apps in CA
for short travels:
Uber and Lyft are good options for you. Don’t hesisate to use them in CA.
Ford GoBike is the option to get a bike. Give a try too.
Summary: You can use them if you wanna move into the CA.
Panic! At the Disco was on stage and it was a great concert!
To be honest, I only spent one day to create the playground application for the WWDC submission.
I developed the game which uses SpriteKit, UIKit and AVFoundation.
Especially, I focused on the following when writing code;
- Protocol Oriented Programming
- Clear code-base
Apart from that, I talked about the work I did in the essay section and what I wanted to do in the future by talking about the details.
